  • You Know You're a Disc Golf Addict When ...

    I was looking through some old computer files when I stumbled across this one. It gave me a good laugh...again. It looks like I'm a disc golf addict 13 times over! (#1, 8, 9, 10, 13, 18, 24, 38, 41, 49, 53, 55, and 57)

    Enjoy!

    I'll not admit to having done any of these things. That's MY story, and I'm sticking to it.

        I'll stop you right there. My name is Sam and I...
        ďI believe I can hit 18 greens, hit every fairway, you know ó Vision 54, which means you birdie every hole, thatís in the back of my mind. I want to putt better, chip better. That day when I hit 18 greens and one putt, Iíll know Iím a complete golfer. Will that ever happen? Iím not sure, but itís possible. The 54 vision is always in the back of my mind.Ē

          "14. You accepted a job relocation to another town on the basis that a course was in the area."

          Been thinking of relocating to a small town and my only criteria is that it has a course nearby.

            I haven't actually moved because of DG, but there have been a couple of business trips that I agreed to only after checking out which courses were nearby.

                    Or you "inadvertently" name your dog after the best course in the NW.

                            62. ...you get complimented on your disc golf tattoo.

                            I like the one about letting your imaginary friends tee first. I don't have any imaginary friends (they all left because I never lost an imaginary tournament), but if I did I'd make them adhere to standard teeing order rules.

                              63. The only thing you do when you work is type blurbs on blogs and forums about how much of a disc golf addict you are.

                              My name is Stu and I spent 500 on lost plastic last summer. Only 150 this year...so far.
